Abstract

This article claims to be both a review of international collaborative efforts in promotion of e-government as a universal value and an agenda-setting paper. The author argues that the e-government agenda in the international arena suffers from its overgeneralization as a tool to achieve better governance, which does not take into account heterogeneous political and institutional environments in different countries, and various disparities in harmonization of realization procedures on a global scale. In particular, the article reviews global collaboration efforts of the last two decades in the promotion of e-government, for instance, its political, economical and technological values, and argues why it is necessary to set an agenda that takes into account typical limitations developed and developing countries face in realization of e-government projects, and suggests ways forward.
